Rove: Palin Not Suitable for President

Karl Rove is about to learn what happens when someone crosses a “Mama Grizzly.” The Republican strategist questioned Sarah Palin’s suitability for president, and said the American people could have concerns whether she has the “gravitas” for the “most demanding job in the world.” Rove also said her upcoming reality show about Alaska’s wilderness could be a problem, noting “I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of ‘that helps me see you in the Oval Office.’” While Rove said Palin had done a “terrific job” as Senator John McCain’s running mate in 2008, he said “being the vice-presidential nominee on the ticket is different from saying ‘I want to be the person at the top of the ticket.’” Rove also said that he felt most Republican voters had not yet made up their minds for the 2012 race.
